    Gear repair

    Hi. Sometimes it's a very unpleasant situation when it's impossible to quickly find a new gear. I decided to restore the gear, maybe this is not the best way, but for some time it should work.

    I weld a damaged tooth with an electric arc welding

    Another brilliant exercise in resourcefulness, well done.
    I would be interested in why such robust gears got damaged, I seem to remember they were from a motorcycle gearbox.

    Good job, nothing wrong with the method.
    I used to have to sit for hours and sometimes more than 2 or 3 days at time building up the worn teeth on 3 and 4 ft diameter gears for oil field equipment then spend days as in several hand grinding the profiles of the very large teeth to some semblance of what I thought the original profile should be. A 150 lb 20 tooth pinion gear was bad enough but the 2000 lb ring gear for a 30" rotary table meant a minimum of 100 lbs of electrodes
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Gears from a motorcycle and a car. The reason for the breakage is very simple, There was a nut in the gearbox, it hit the tooth and locked the gears.

    Years ago I had a steering gear in a collector I.H. Cub tractor with a broken tooth. This was before I had a welder etc. Took it to a machine shop and that was how they fixed it. It outlasted the rest of the tractor.

    Vyacheslav, I have done a similar repair job on a big lathe years ago. But friend, I have to tell you, that you are a recycling sorcerer! You can turn a sows ear into a silk purse. I have worked with Russians and Ukrainians and you people are some of the most resourceful people I have ever met!
